I can remember going back to school, the nerves and excitement of another year of learning. I've been out for 10 years but it seems like yesterday that I was out with my old man buying all the things I needed to be prepared for school. I did try to sneak a few extra things on the list but Dad usually caught them. Here is an updated list of what you'll need if you kids makes it to Middle/High School. Good Lucks parents and when in doubt, call the teacher.
